404 hp and a range of 51 km in all electric mode. The Jaguar Land Rover Group is entering a new era, the rechargeable hybrid. The English manufacturer has just introduced its first model equipped with this technology, the Range Sport P400e.

The arrival of this new version is an integral part of the restylage for the entire Range Rover Sport family. But more than the aesthetic changes we have already mentioned, it is especially the technical content that deserves your attention here.

As for the thermal engine, the Range Rover Sport P400e takes back the four-cylinder gasoline 2 liters of 300 hp. This engine is combined with a 116 hp power unit, with a combined power of 404 hp and a torque of 640 Nm. Housed at the rear, under the floor, the 13.1 kWh batteries offer an all-electric range of 51 km. Their charge requires at best 2 hours and 45 minutes. Combined consumption is estimated at 2.8 liters / 100 km, CO2 emissions fall to 64g / km.

There are therefore two modes of driving proposed: an all electric and a  Parallel Hybrid (selected by default). With this one, the electric and thermal engines work together.

Equipped with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, the Range Rover Sport P400e offers a 0 to 100 km / h in 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 220 km / h.

This model is a first step in a green offensive that is set to gain momentum in the coming years. Moreover, all the innovations of the JLR group will benefit from a form of electrification from 2020.

The prices of this Range “green” start at 88\’500 euros in France. Deliveries will begin before the end of the year.
